This shop was started as a way to raise money to pay for heart surgery for my darling kitten, Viva le Chat. Unfortunately, her life was much too short and she died of heart failure on June 23, 2008 at 9 months old. I miss her so much.
I love making catnip mice, and hearing how much my buyers' kitties love their new toys. In Viva's memory, I donate a third of what I earn on Etsy to imom.org, an organization that raises money for people who cannot afford necessary emergency vet care for their companion animals. Without imom's fundraising efforts, these animals would die.
The kittens in my listings are my new babies, Yeti and ZZ. While ZZ was always going to join my family, Yeti and his other sister CC were in need of a home due to the GM plant closing in my hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin (my parents took in CC, and I adopted Yeti and ZZ)...
